The Soviet Union as it was corrupted by Stalin clearly had its horrors, but it also had its great benefits and successes, and one of these was massive state support for its classical music cultural sector, which produced some of modern humanity's greatest composers and performance artists, and supported great symphony orchestras and classical organizations such as the Bolshoi Ballet. This had a huge positive influence on classical music worldwide. Efforts to "proletarianize" classical music - particularly the great composers such as Beethoven and all his symphonies - and make it more accessible to the masses were elements of state cultural policy.
